Dental treatment performed in patients receiving continuous oral anticoagulant drug therapy is becoming increasingly common in dental offices. For these patients it is imperative to carry out careful anamnesis, as well as a multi professional clinical evaluation with regard to the risk and control of hemorrhagic or thromboembolic episodes. The aim of this study was to assess the haemostatic efficacy and safety of the topical use of Calcium sulfate (CaS) in the setting of dental surgery. Following the approval from of the Local Research Ethics Committee (CaS) as a haemostatic agent in Dentistry. No patient had wound infection and the healing process appeared to be normal. CaS is useful for the local hemostasis and wound healing in periodontal surgeries. In conclusion, the use of CaS controlled the bleeding from inside the extraction socket producing instantly a very good haemostasis.
